I love this pasta recipe.. though landing that Gorgonzola cheese may be a bit of a challenge :) I would also add some finely chopped basil to garnish this. A veg pasta recipe is a fresh delight from the meaty ones

I agree with you...a veg pasta recipe is always a fresh delight compared to the meaty this pasta dish, I would also like to add some more spices like oregano, chili flakes, etc...!
